Another glorious day for cricket and the enthusiasm for the game has been overwhelming with 1368 hits in the first week for the three result pages and 420 hits for the match report. The Premier Section attracted over 500 hits on its own with both Star and Crescents Section attracted over 400 each.
Another busy week for player registration which reached 298 yesterday that is an increase of 50% in just 1 week. As the competition intensifies the likelihood of more players being attracted to the league is evitable. The league is one of very few leagues that attracts players from as far as Nottinghamshire, The Midlands and Lancashire.
The weather played a key part in todays innings scores as the batters got the better of the ball. We had two centurions in reduced over of 35 innings due to the month of Ramadan. Kashmir gained maximum points again to maintain first position and is the only team not to drop any points in the Premier Section. In Crescent Section both Rising Star and Leeds Stallions gained maximum points to maintain their lead at the top of the table, closely followed by Scouthill on 39 points, whilst in the Star Section Punjab also gained maximum points to now lead in their respective Section, closely behind them is Rajpoot on 36 points.
